AppSearch - Registry value changed

I'm facing a weird issue where I configured an AppSearch to look for a path in the registry. The key exists on both "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Help\v1.0" and "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Help\v1.0". The value, in both cases, contains the following value "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Help Viewer\v1.0\" (note that it's "Program Files" and not "Program Files(x86)").

When using the property value that has been set by the AppSearch, I see that the path has been modified to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Help Viewer\v1.0\" which of course does not exists.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

Did you generate a log to see if anything is changing the property value?

Is that a regular REG_SZ value in registry, or is it a REG_EXPAND_SZ ?
